he meant between no lsd, and lsd he would pick LSD

LSD=limited slip differential=better cornering

thats your advantage, there are no disadvantages

lsd

so out the hole lsd serves no purpose just when cornering the rotation is constant on both wheels to avoid the loss of traction.....am i close?

When you turn, the inside wheel has little weight on it as the load transfers to the outside wheels. With an open differential, the power will go to the wheel with the least resistance (the inside wheel), and it will just spin, what do you get? nothing. Ever notice those cars that do burnouts at a track to warm up their tires, and sometimes only ONE WHEEL SPINS, that's an open differential. Limit-slip allows the car to sense which wheel is slipping and transfer power to the wheel (in increments) to the wheel with the resistance.

it also does help with acceleration, instead of just spinning one wheel, it will spin both evenly lol
